1880s, more than twenty homeopathic
medical colleges had been established,
and there were hundreds of homeopathic
hospitals and thousands of homeopathic
doctors. The practice of homeopathy as
common treatment faded soon after the
American Medical Association (AMA)
was established and the profitable pharmaceutical industry was born.
According to the AMA’s historical
timeline, during the early 1900s an appointed committee established standards
for registered hospitals (1928), examination for certification of specialists (1934),
and in 1942 formed a liaison between the
AMA and the Association of American

accredited education in the medical field,
which did not include studies such as
chiropractic medicine, naturopathy, and

reactions to those stresses play out
differently among individuals. For ex-

aches and constipation or diarrhea; an-
other might have muscle and joint aches
or become sick with a fever. Presenting
symptoms are simply manifestations of
responses to stress.
